A project started a few years ago, on the initiative of a passionate group of researchers and experts on the world of heraldry. It is based on the concept of 'continuous research' that allows a steady growth of the archive for what concerns the number of surnames available, but also and above all, regarding the amount of information available for each individual surname.
Our archive does not contain any stories already 'ready to be provided to the Customer' but it is updated daily with new information thanks to the work of our study center, as already mentioned.
Each new order corresponds to a new search which results in a unique snd customized product finally printed in High Quality on precious paper. The Researchers of our Study Center manually perform every single research because information on the family name, sometimes provided by the the Customer also in the form of a simple trace, may be contained in different archives and/or texts and the same information must be selected, chronologically organized, verified and compared and, finally, validated by the manager of our archive that affix his own original signature on the copy sent to the the Customer.
